Guest artist

Corneille Driezen

Gorgeous “Avis Sapiens” in the Great Falls National Historical Park 5th Annual Paterson Artwalk.

Corneille Driezen

 

We explored our park and created a new way of looking at it. On May 18, 2013, Corneille Driezen came to the Paterson, New Jersey to

share something with us. He gave us three images and invited us to exhibit them in our park. We were proud of our exhibit and grateful to all of the artists and vendors who participated in the rain:( But it was cool. We did it. Finally… we are in the park! Arts have emerged in our community!

 

I’m feeling very happy for us all!¬†And Corneille Driezen?

He was generous in leaving us 60 prints of his “Wise Birds.”
